About Us

Here at Gousto, we are on a mission to become the UK's most-loved way to eat dinner!

Delicious recipes, precise ingredients and a dollop of adventure, delivered to your door. We have invested in our technology, data capability and product to make sure the customer is at the heart of everything we do.

Whether it’s innovation through our recipe development, building algorithms to optimise our recipe box journey, or devising strategies to reduce plastic and food waste, every team plays a part in our amazing growth.

Our DREAM? To be the most-loved way to eat dinner, and for every meal to leave the planet better off. Gousto is changing how people shop, cook and eat food at home. It’s an incredibly exciting time to join our team!

The Creative Team

Our Creative Team is home to copywriters, designers and our very own photography studio, and at Gousto, the Senior Studio Manager is at the heart of it all. You’ll be the one who gets our creative talent working to its fullest and most brilliant potential – from the tasty briefs through to the finished article.

As the person who brings together the team’s creativity, you’ll feast your eyes on groundbreaking brand partnerships (Wagamama? Marmite? Joe Wicks? Yes please!), mouthwatering photoshoots (may we refer you to our DIY pizzas), and red hot new recipe ranges right from the oven. You’ll help the Creative Team make everything look and sound Gousto, from the billboards you see at train stations to the big red box that arrives at your doorstep.

We’ve built a team of razor sharp creative talent in recent years, but the Gousto trajectory is rocket-worthy and every team in the biz wants to work with us. We need a rockstar Senior Studio Manager in our gang so we can get stuck into every opportunity we get our pencils on. So, if you love food and want to share that passion with the world, send us your tastiest CV and dust off your best chat. You could be our missing ingredient!

Senior Studio Manager

We have big plans and we need an exceptional Senior Studio Manager at the helm to make them happen. We’re after someone who’s a pro at project management and has a hidden talent for getting the best out people. If you pride yourself on never losing sight of the bigger picture whilst managing to dive into the details – you sound like our person.

What you’ll be doing

  • Managing the workflow (and scheduling system) for all projects, from brief to completion, to ensure all projects are delivered on time, on budget, on brand, and to stakeholder satisfaction
  • Driving continuous planning and process improvements to deliver against growing and evolving business needs
  • Facilitating collaboration across teams to gather necessary inputs for decision-making
  • Making sure that the balance of permanent and freelance designers and copywriters is sufficient to meet the demand for work
  • Managing our relationship with agencies; ensuring teams are tracking towards agreed milestones and getting what they need, and overseeing production logistics
  • Oversee the day-to-day management of the creative team budget (including invoice and purchase order management) and forecast monthly changes
  • Managing and developing the skills of our talented production manager
  • Bringing a positive energy and ops point of view to the brand community and Gousto as a whole

Who you are

To apply for this role, you’ll need to be extremely organised and have the ability to juggle shifting and tight deadlines within a fast paced environment. Being responsible for who does what and when, you’ll also need an extremely keen eye for detail and be able to show a sound understanding of the Gousto brand and culture. We are fast moving, so being proactive, diplomatic and spotting the opportunities to help and improve things are also vital.

As well as top-notch project management skills, you’ll have:

  • Considerable experience in managing operations an in-house or agency creative studio
  • An in-depth knowledge and experience in the creative process
  • Solid experience interpreting creative briefs and managing the briefer’s expectations without compromising the quality
  • A proven track record of improving processes and strategic thinking skills
  • Proven people management experience, and you enjoy leading people to success
  • A natural ability to create an atmosphere of positive energy that drives results and to build great relationships with people from across the business
  • Strong problem solving and analytical skills with the ability to think differently and make things happen

Finally, it’ll tip the scales in your favour, if you have:

  • Experience working on national and international brands (and with great FMCG brands)
  • Experience in developing and creating a creative team strategy
  • Up-to-date knowledge of print, packaging and digital production techniques
  • Awareness of and interest in the latest design, social and cultural trends
